Ex-Simba Coach Gomes Lands New Job

Former Simba SC boss Didier Gomes has been appointed the new head coach of the Mauritania national team where he succeeds compatriot Corentin Martins.

Gomes, 52, is set for his first national team role just a month after parting ways with the Tanzanian giants which he led to the Vodafone Premier League triumph and the CAF Champions League quarter-finals last season.

Having won league titles in Rwanda, Cameroon, Guinea and Sudan, the Frenchman comes highly rated in a role that has major expectations due to his predecessor Martins impressive seven-year stint with the 102nd ranked side.

Martins led the West African to two consecutive Africa Cup of Nations tournaments but departs before Cameroon 2021 after their dismal 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign.

Gomes will now lead the side in the upcoming continental showpiece set to take place in January where they are in Group F alongside, Tunisia, Mali and The Gambia.
